Museum of Erotica information
It is odd enough that a museum should be housed in a venereal disease clinic, but even more surprising is that the chief attraction is a 30cm-long grey, embalmed penis that allegedly belonged to Rasputin. The chief of the prostate research centre of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, Igor Knyazkin, assembled this collection of sexually themed trinkets his patients had given him over the years. At the very least, it gives patients something to do in the waiting room. Other exhibits include the bone of a sea lion’s penis and various statuettes of people and animals in a variety of sexual positions.
